This special issue in 𝗢𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗽𝘂𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗦𝗰𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 (𝗜𝗙 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟮: 𝟭.𝟱) focuses on Nano computing Technologies.
With the emergence of new technologies and advancements in computing, various optimizations are being made in the applications like the industrial sector, health care, and military operations. The advances mentioned above are due to the development in sensor operations, communication networks, and intelligence technologies. Cyber-physical systems find their application in areas that require complex modeling and functionalities and the above technologies. Cyber-physical systems integrate devices with controlling, data analysis, sensing, and networking capabilities with the physical objects and infrastructure. Moreover, the whole system is coordinated by the internet and hence provides data sharing and storage capabilities advancements. Accordingly, the deployment of cyber-physical systems, complex technologies like innovative grid operations, the evolution of quantum functions, automated vehicular processes, and industrial control could be simplified. On the other hand, some of the vulnerabilities faced by the cyber-physical systems include the threats of security posted on data, heterogeneous connectivity of the system, wireless exposure of data over the network, fake identity attacks, and social engineering.
Since the risks associated with data mitigation and error caused in the cyber-physical data are high, these systems must be protected with more secure algorithms or integrated with effective technologies. Nowadays, nanotechnology is seen in various applications that include quantum computing to intelligent grid operations. Since the functions performed by the nanosystems are highly secure and faster when compared to other computing technologies, they could be integrated with the cyber-physical applications in overcoming various threats. With the quantum simulation models and the microcomputing models, Nano computing could aid the cyber-physical systems with high performance in extreme conditions of data processing.
Furthermore, nanotechnology includes the processes associated with robotics, medical scale applications, and bioengineering. Hence, the cyber-physical system could be extended to the above applications, nanobot deployments, and cost reduction functionalities. Since both the cyber-physical system and the nanotechnology involve improving real-world computing and data processing efficiency, a more significant number of environmental data could be processed effectively and cost reduction and high-performance computing.
This special issue aims to integrate nanotechnology with cyber-physical systems so that the functionalities of both technologies can be improved. Hence, the researchers and academicians could bring forward the ideas associated with integrating nanotechnology and cyber-physical systems supported by Edge/Cloud computing models and AI methods.
